Disability inclusive workplaces

The Queensland Government is committed to increasing the representation and careers of people living with disability in government. See our Disabling the barriers to employment in the Queensland public sector implementation plan 2022 (PDF, 297 KB) .

Use the resources available to create an inclusive workplace where employees who live with disability feel safe, respected and included.

Review your agency’s Working for Queensland survey results. This may provide some insight into barriers and issues your employees living with disability are facing. Use this information to start a conversation with your team about how to create a better, more inclusive work environment.
